LibriVox recording of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Read by Karen Savage.

Pride and Prejudice is the most famous of Jane Austen’s novels, and its opening is one of the most famous lines in English literature - “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Its manuscript was first written between 1796 and 1797, and was initially called First Impressions, but was never published under that title. Following revisions it was published on 28 January 1813 by the same Mr. Egerton of the Military Library, Whitehall, who had brought out Sense and Sensibility. Like both its predecessor and Northanger Abbey, it was written at Steventon Rectory. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Subject: Nicely read
Karen Savage delivers the dialogue well, adding the correct intonation and emphasis, which some other readings occasionally get wrong, which can be slightly confusing at times. For example, the line "Tease calmness of manner and presence of mind!" should be read in a sceptical, questioning tone. This reader gets it right.
Some of the other readings also seem to use an incorrect text, for example confusingly omitting the word "I" in "No, no — I feel he may defy us there". Or maybe the original text was like that? Either way, this version seems to match the current Gutenberg text.

Subject: Dry humor well read
Classic Austen droll take on the society of her era. Karen Savage's carried off Austen's dry humor with a wonderfully "innocent" approach.

I love this book! I enjoy reading and this was the first time I heard the audio book. Love it, Love it!

Subject: Superb Reader
The best reader I've heard yet. Expressive, clear, engaging, good enunciation. Fast, yes, but she got through the entire book in about 10 hours and that's good, especially for a book of which we all know the plot. I singed up for a LIbrivox account for the purose of being able to add my commendation to this reading.

I find pride and prejudice to be one of the most boring books ever written.

Subject: Nice..!
I finaly finish this audiobook. I must say I did not like the plot and I finish it because it was effortless given Karen Savage reading.

I do not yet understand the motivations of characters and found too superficial the English society of the time, but I guess that would be a review for Jane Austin, not Karen Savage.

Karen Save brings a nice British accent, very different from other Audiobooks. Sometimes she looses it a bit, and American English comes in (Especially in vowels), but most of the time she manages to give an adequate old-fashioned speech which facilitates immersing into the time and plot.

Sometimes, nonetheless she speaks too fast. I had trouble imagining 19-century-British people speaking that fast, considering the kind of vocabulary they use. Ms. Savage is very good with words, but I believe not everyone in the 19th century would be so proficient and in such a hurry. Although, I could be wrong.

Nice work and may be the only way I would have "read" this book.

Absolutely Wonderful!! Excellent reading! This version is far more preferable to others available.

Subject: Heavily funny!
How could one not enjoy this wonderful novel?
The reading style is great and the story, well there's no need to praise that.
Anyway I found the pace a little too fast, sometimes, for me to grasp some of the long, articulate, Austen's sentences, but that's not of any impediment to the enjoyment of the whole and it's certainly my problem only.

A must listen to, for everyone.
